Four Easy Home Decoration Crafts
Tree coat rack
This is one of the easy crafts that occupies the least space. You just have to have an available section on the wall of your choice and draw the tree trunk and branches.
The tree should have several branches. In these branches, you drill small holes to insert sturdy nails. You can hang an object on “each branch”: umbrellas, coats, bags, scarves, and so on.
You can draw and paint the tree in minimalist style or really have a go at it. Everything depends on the space and how you want it to look.
For a minimalist style, you need the following materials:
- 1 drill
- A pencil and eraser
- 1 medium paintbrush
- Masking tape
- Several large nails
- Several newspaper sheets
- Half a gallon of black paint (or the color of your choice).
- Clean the section of the wall you selected. It mustn’t have cobwebs or stains.
- With the pencil, draw the tree on the wall. Make several branches. Make sure to space them out.
- Use the eraser to fix any mistakes.
- Once your sketch is complete, take the masking tape and place it above the tree lines.
- Place the newspaper sheets right under the wall. This way, you’ll make sure not to get anything on the floor once you start painting.
- Make sure the paintbrush is clean. Then, dip it in the paint and start painting.
- Apply the first coat of paint and, once dry, apply the second. This way, the paint won’t clump up.
- After the second coat dries, remove the masking tape.
- Select the places where you’ll place the nails (make sure they’re spaced apart enough so the objects don’t collide when you hang them).
- Drill the holes and place the nails.
- That’s it! You have your own tree coat rack.

Decorative dinnerware set
Do you have a really boring white dinnerware set? Don’t worry; we’re going to show you how to make it pop!
- Porcelain paints (colors of your choice)
- Permanent markers (colors of your choice)
- Different sized paintbrushes
- Sheets of paper
- Choose the design of your choice before drawing it on the dishes. Practice it on the sheets of paper. Use the pencil and make the design a few times.
- After you’re confident, draw the design on another sheet of paper and cut it out.
- Place the design on the first dish you’re going to decorate.
- Once you’re sure of the shape and placement, draw it on. Take your time. Focus, draw, and paint it slowly. (If you mess up, you can use a solvent to fix it).
- Once your drawing is ready, you must wait 2 days for the paint to dry.
- Finally, put the dish in the oven for about 5 minutes.
This is a great idea for those who love rustic objects. It’s perfect if you want your wall to look sober and elegant. You can make this clock with a circular piece of a tree trunk.
- A slice of a tree trunk
- A clock mechanism
- Paint (color of your choice)
- Hands for the clock
- Transparent varnish
- Drill a hole in the center of the trunk.
- Through the hole, unite the clock mechanism with the hands.
- Paint the clock with the transparent varnish to give it a more professional finish.
- Paint the hours as you want them to appear.

- Spray paint
- Petroleum jelly
- Several balloons
- 1 pair of scissors
- A container
- Vinyl glue
- Hot water
- Fishing line
- Cotton thread
- 1/2 cup of cornstarch
